A massive Boiler Explosion occurred on Monday (03/04/17) in the USA on a small industrial estate, so far 3 people dead and 4 seriously injured. Also, a serious explosion last week in Petersburg, USA with at least three people hospitalised.
Did you know that we manufacture small boilers suitable for the food and drink industy or are you a craft brewer? Then we can help. Our small boilers start from as low as 455 kg per hour, which means that you can benefit from Cochran’s expertise, quality and reliability.
Cochran have been designing and manufacturing oil and gas burners for over 60 years. In 2014 the Company was approached to collaborate on a new range of pressure jet burners. We agreed a criteria and specification, then set forth on a new venture and a new phase in burner design and manufacture at Cochran.
We have developed a mono bloc, gun type burner suitable from 0.5 to 6 tonnes of steam output. These burners are offered for gaseous, distillate and residual oil firing – all in dual fuel or dual oil combinations. Available in staged firing or fully modulating operation.
The HSE and Insurance Companies require proof of competence in the boiler house. You must ensure that those responsible for day-to-day boiler operation, or overall management, have been trained to be fully conversant with the risks, safety procedures and best practice in the boilerhouse. To assist in this requirement Cochran are offering 2 courses at our Training Centre in the spring.
Cochran’s extensive expertise and experience in meeting legislation and industry approved codes of practice, enables the Company to provide authoritative support and guidance to customers as part of its competitively priced ‘Boilerhouse Technical Risk Assessment’ service
After many years leading the market with trusted brands like the Wee Chieftain and Thermax, Cochran have once again combined innovation and expertise to introduce the next generation of boiler technology. Cochran’s new boiler will set the benchmark standards that others will have to strive hard to meet. This new era in boiler design and manufacture draws on more than 135 years at the forefront of boiler making worldwide – it’s a tradition we are proud of, and one we are now looking forward to building on still further.
This comprehensive guide deals with all aspects of water treatment for steam boilers, steam generators and hot water boilers. This document applies to industrial and commercial steam and hot water boiler plant including steam generators, operating at a working pressure of between 0.5 and 60bar gauge (except where stated) and a working temperature between 110oc and 400oc. We trust that by studying the contents and following the freely given advice your boiler plant will operate safely and more efficiently, and provide you with a trouble-free system.
LNG will fuel a new on-site R&D centre, helping to train more than 500 employees and commercial customers every year. LNG will also provide space heating for the company’s factory during the colder winter months. Previously fuelled by oil, LNG’s green credentials are a key driver for the switch, reducing the site’s CO2 emissions by 28%.
This on top of this we are happy to state that following The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Audit which was conducted by Tim McGee of ASME in Canada, we have been recommended for renewal of the ASME S & U Stamps for a further three years.
This major order for Cochran consists of four 20 t/h 16 bar Twin Furnace Thermax boilers, each fitted with Cochran Equinox burners with a full package of control and monitoring and a two stage condensing economiser system to maximise boiler efficiency. The boilers will be shipped in September 2016.
